Josephine in Coral Little Blomster

Pattern: Josephine by Violette Field Threads
Size 9/10
Fabric: Mormor Little Blomster in Coral by Lotta Jansdotter

I loved sewing this Josephine blouse as part of a Violette Field Threads sew-a-long.
Until, I got to the buttons.  They were a little frustrating.....  Lots of layers to sew a button hole through, and small buttons/button holes at that, but let's just leave it at that since I'm mostly over it now.  It was a learning experience and I'd make the pattern again. I really like the collar and pin tucks and sleeves (K* isn't sure about the flutteriness of the sleeves yet).Maybe a Josephine dress in the future.

I've never done a sew-a-long on the actual sew-a-long days, it was nice to have the pattern broken up into daily tasks.

My sweet K* wore this on the first day back to school and looked so cute.
